STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System
STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System is a state of the art computer-controlled injection technology to achieve more precise injections, improve drug delivery and materially enhance patient comfort levels. Benefits of the STA System to both doctor and patient are many. The precise delivery method allows a single tooth to be made numb, so the patient does not feel any effects in the lip or tongue. The system offers instant onset, so a dentist can begin treatment immediately. A large volume of drug can be administered, so effects will last as long as virtually any procedure. Because of the precise delivery method, a dentist using STA can perform bilateral dentistry in the mandible. The dentist can also perform palatal injections that are virtually painless.
Dental patients everywhere have one thing in common: most people don’t like anesthetic shots. In addition to being intimidating and painful, most patients have to endure multiple shots to numb the tooth or teeth in question – an ordeal that is almost worse than the procedure itself.
To make the process of getting dental care more comfortable, our practice has transitioned to the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia system. Instead of numbing the entire area around your damaged tooth with large, intimidating syringes, the Wand discreetly numbs the individual tooth dentists need to work on. The Wand STA System is also unique because it delivers a computer-controlled flow of anesthesia rather than one large, stinging injection, creating a more comfortable numbing experience.
State Of The Art Design
The Wand component of the STA System looks like a small pen with a cord attached to it. At the tip of this wand, there is an extremely small needle that is used to deliver the anesthesia. Because the Wand looks so benign, it is perfect for patients who are nervous about shots and needles, such as children who haven’t had much practice with injections or adults and teens with dental phobias or anxiety.
As your Raga Dental works on your teeth, they can control the flow of anesthesia to keep you as comfortable as possible. The Wand delivers the medicine at precisely the right rate for the tissue density of the area, offering patients the pain relief they need immediately. In fact, most patients report that injections with the Wand STA system are completely painless.
